Hey all, this is my first post, i’ve been brewing about a year so have lurked here for a good bit already though! This is a recipe I figured out from reading about other people’s pineapple experience, I intend to start soon but wanted to get opinions on it beforehand in case any of y’all have...
I am trying to brew a vanilla orange cream ale, and found that adding vanilla beans (3 total) at flameout with a (30 minute steep) resulted in virtually no flavor, aroma, or even notes. Next time I am planning on using vanilla extract but wasn’t sure how much to add. Obviously this...
I am planning to make pastry stout.
But I have some questions.
One is to store cookies in vodka for a week and put both vodka and cookies in the second fermentation.
If I put vodka together at this time, wouldn't it increase alcohol and adversely affect beer?
Also, is there enough flavor...
I recently decided to make a 1 gallon batch of mead. For my mead I am using Saigon cinnamon sticks and Madagascar vanilla beans. The Yeast I’m using is Lalvin EC-1118 (thoughts?). I was planning on leaving it in the primary for about a month, and then racking to secondary for 2ish weeks.
I've been searching the forums and can't seem to find a definitive answer so I figured I would ask for opinions.
In some cases I would like to add spices like vanilla beans, whole allspice, cinnamon sticks, orange zest, etc.
My concern is about introducing contamination. I could soak the...

I am still new to brewing but as an avid cook I cannot stop myself from jumping off the deep end and crafting recipes right from the start. I do have a couple questions sprinkled throughout.
I was inspired by this recipe...
So I had an idea for this "Girl Scout Cookie" type of recipe and came up with this. Not sure if it has too much stuff in it, perhaps it might do well without the Cinnamon. This is BIAB, by the way.
Boil: 7 Gal
Batch: 5 Gal
Brewing Time: 60min
Temp: 100 (when malts go in)
150 (until water boils...
I plan to make an extract cream ale and then after fermentation is done, add vanilla beans and cinnamon to it.
My question is, should I rack it to a secondary for this or can I pour it into the primary?
I should make note that I plan to soak a cinnamon stick and a few vanilla beans...
There is a small brewery here in Texas that makes a honey blonde with Mexican vanilla added and it is probably one of my top 3 beers - it's called Feisty Blonde. It is surprisingly heavy for it being a blonde with its 8.27% ABV. I'm a new brewer and don't know much in the way of developing a...
I finally decided to try some adjuncts with my last brew (a Nut Brown).
I chopped and scraped 2 vanilla beans, soaked them in vodka for a week, added all of it to primary, and let is it for another week. At bottling it smelled strongly of vanilla and tasted medium to medium-high on the...

I have a little experiment in mind and would love to get some second opinions.
I just made up a 4 gallon batch of straight mead, just honey, water, nutrient and yeast, OG 1.070. I plan on splitting it into 4 one gallons after primary is done. I know what I'm going to do...
Hi, first time i've actually tried to make a recipe, and it's for a friend who wants a "vanilla oatmeal blonde, with at least 5% abv". He also wants it on the less bitter side. Will this recipe need more bittering hops, so as to balance the maltiness/sweetness? Different hops/grains/yeast? I...
